Delphi: A Day Tour at the Navel of the World from Athens

Expect pickup from your central Athens hotel by 8:30am, when you'll board the coach for the journey to Delphi. Your guide will point out highlights including the Boeotian Plain, an agricultural center since ancient times, the city of Thebes, where King Oedipus was born, and Mount Parnassus, the towering peak above Delphi where the ancient Greek Muses lived. Around two hours in, you'll break your journey with a short rest stop at the town of Livadia. From here, it's under an hour to Delphi, the UNESCO World Heritage Site known in ancient times as 'the navel of the world', where inspired prophetesses produced oracles that foretold the future. Your guide will show you the Castalian Spring, where the priestesses used to bathe, and lead you around the archaeological site: you'll have about two and a half hours here, all in all. Admire highlights including the Monument to the Kings of Argos, the Athenian Treasury, the ancient colonnade known as the Stoa of the Athenians, and the polygonal wall, with its artfully crafted masonry. Learn about the Greek god Apollo and his worship at the site as you visit the Temple of Apollo. Next, see highlights of the Delphi Archaeological Museum, packed with treasures excavated here. Admire the Naxian Sphinx, which once guarded the Temple pf Apollo, the frieze from the Siphnian Treasury, and sculptures including the Statue of Antinous, lover of the Roman emperor Hadrian. See the Charioteer of Delphi, one of the masterpieces of ancient Greek bronze artistry, created to commemorate a victory in the Pythian Games, which were held at Delphi to honor Apollo. If you've selected the option “with lunch”, you'll enjoy a 3-course feast at a local restaurant. If you haven't, you'll have time to buy snacks, eat a packed lunch, or explore Delphi independently before rejoining the coach. After lunch, visit Athena Pronaia Sanctuary, the most-photographed spot in Delphi. Return to Athens passing by Arachova. It's around 2.5 hours’ drive back to Athens, where you'll return to your hotel around 6:30pm.
